John Cage Lecture Reading: on Rauschenberg, Duchamp, Johns etc. at L.A. County Museum of Art, 1965
John Cage reads: "On Robert Rauschenberg, Artist and His Work", published in his book Silence, and "26 Statements Re Duchamp", and "Jasper Johns: Stories and Ideas", both published in his book A Year From Monday. The lecture begins with an amusing and informative autobiographical introduction to his interest in art and artists, how he became a composer, and how he wrote each of these pieces. This lecture is of great historical value.
